Samantha Ford becomes Concert Organiser for the Lydney Training Band to host a fundraising charity concert with guest euphonium soloist Thomas Dunne to celebrate young lives.
The concert will showcase the success of the Lydney Band's training and youth development programme, bringing the talent of the Lydney Training Band and the Lydney Starter Band to the stage. Both bands combined consist of over 44 youth and adult members mainly local to Lydney, the Forest of Dean. The Lydney Starter Band will perform a selection of well known tunes including Marching Saints and Shaker Song (Lord of the Dance), and the Lydney Training Band will play music including Punchinellie, Everybody Needs Somebody, and Yesterday at the concert.
The Lydney Band believe that brass playing should not only be enjoyed but also provide key skills such as teamwork, multitasking, analytical thinking, and social skills to as many people as possible. The band therefore tutor a large range of youth and adults as part of their training programme, of which members will be seen on stage at the concert. The Lydney Band organisation provides expert tutoring and mentoring through Associated Board Music Examinations (ABRSM) and maintains a 100% pass rate with over 60% achieving the top grade of 'distinction'.
Please come along to show your support and celebrate with us! We hope to see you on Saturday 21st April 2018 at 6.30pm at the Lydney Town Hall. BOOK NOW!
Tickets are £6 adults and £5 concessions, with £1 programmes with free raffle ticket included available on the night! Refreshments including hot beverages, crisps, and cake will also be available.
